Edmentum and Quality Matters: Announcing our Latest Recertification!

Monday, October 3, 2016 -- Brianna Pyka

At Edmentum, we’re committed to ensuring that we are fostering meaningful, effective, and lasting partnerships built on credibility, integrity, and ethics. Not only are we committed to being a true partner to educators to drive academic success, but we’re also committed to developing important relationships that help Edmentum grow as an organization by working with like-minded companies.

Edmentum is proud to partner with various third party organizations for the purpose of reviewing both the technology and the rigorous curriculum that we provide. One of our key partnerships is with Quality Matters (QM), an international organization representing broad inter-institutional collaboration and a shared understanding of online course quality. And, we are very excited to share that Edmentum recently received a perfect score on QM recertification!

Quality Matters carries out a faculty-centered, peer review process that is designed to certify the quality of online courses and online components. The QM review team recently completed their biennial “Template Review” of Edmentum. This review must take place every two years by each vendor that wishes to submit additional individual courses for certification moving forward. This review looked specifically at Edmentum’s overall Learning Management System and course architecture (i.e. technology specifications, user experience, navigation, student/teacher interaction capabilities, available tools, etc.). After extensive evaluation, the team declared that Edmentum earned a perfect 49 out of 49 score on this template review, and maintains eligibility for another two years of overall QM certification.

“At Edmentum, providing high quality education technology is core to our mission,” said Dave Adams, Chief Academic Officer at Edmentum. “We are honored to be recognized by Quality Matters in this way and pleased to support their ongoing efforts to ensure educators have access to high quality programs.”

Edmentum’s online courses, accessible through both Plato Courseware and EdOptions Academy, have received the Quality Matters Certificate of Course Recognition, which confirms both learning solutions meet QM’s stringent review standards for online education. This recognition helps schools navigate the crowded marketplace to identify only the best options for online learning.
